Bathroom Storage Space
Everyone wishes they had more storage space at home — maybe a lot more.
- Hang a wicker basket on the bathroom wall for storing towels, tissues, soap, bath toys, and other incidentals.
- Make your shower rod do double duty. Attach extra hooks to hold a back brush and a net bag for bath toys and washcloths.
- Erect shelves in the space beside the vanity, behind the door, or over the toilet. Such shelves offer convenient storage without intruding on floor space.
- Consider installing over-the-door towel racks, or place hooks on the inside of the bathroom door for towels and bathrobes.
Bedroom Storage Space
- Add more storage space in your bedroom by building a headboard storage unit. You can place books, lamps, or a radio on top of the unit and store extra linens and blankets on the inside.
- Use flat roll-out bins for under-the-bed storage. They can hold bed linens, sewing supplies, and infrequently used items.
- For a double-duty ottoman, build a plywood box with a hinged cover. Paint the outside, or cover it with fabric. Add a thick cushion for comfortable sitting, and store your magazines in style.
